Morgantown, WV — Team Green and Monster Energy Kawasaki responds to
three riders Josh Creamer, Josh Upperman and Jason Luburgh being
chosen for the ATV Open Invitational at Steel City.
Team Green Manager Reid Nordin
Reid, what are your thoughts on the ATV Open?
RN: I think the Open has potential to be an outstanding event, and
that's why we decided to attend with our team.
How do your riders stack up against the top ATVA Pros, in your opinion?
RN: Our riders have accomplished a great deal in their young careers
and they will continue to improve each race they attend. The Monster
Energy Kawasaki team has a solid group of riders with an outstanding
team effort that has come a long way in just a short period of time.
In the four and a half months since the KFX450 hit the showroom
floors, we have been able to make an impact at the racetrack in a
short time, and we are pleased with the progress of the riders and the
Any predictions on the event, or what will happen as a result?
RN: This is a unique format with both AMA Pro Motocross and AMA Pro
ATV riders racing the same track on the same weekend. It is going to
be a learning experience for all involved, and I hope our guys can put
on a good show for the fans.
Monster Energy Kawasaki ATV Team Manager Jimmy White
Jimmy, how do you feel about the ATV Open?
JW: We're all excited to be able to show what the ATV guys are able to
do on the same track as the two wheel guys. The ATV riders look up to
the professionalism of the bike teams and riders.
What do you think about the format compared to the bikes?
JW: As far as the format, I think it will be good for this one time
event. We should be running heats also, but we understand this is a
trial event to see how things go. Now if your talking about a format
sharing with the bike guys on the same weekend, then it would be good
to give the fans a bigger bang for their bucks. They will enjoy
watching what these quads are capable of doing.
Any predictions for the event?
JW: Of course, it will be a Green rider.
